Dmitry Semizorov: Working as at Forefront
Central Research Institute of Precision Engineering (TSNIITOCHMASH) develops combat gear of “soldier of the future”, “Ratnik”. The Institute is also known because it develops and manufactures the most massive types of weapons and military equipment for various types of troops. The Company CEO Dmitry Semizorov reported in an interview with “Red Star” on the elements of equipment and plans of the enterprise.
In 2014, we carried out the state defense order in full and on time. We completed the next stage of the development of modern sniper complex in caliber 7.62×51 mm and 8.6×69 designed for law enforcement agencies of Russia. Over the past year the Institute has carried out all the planned work as part of combat equipment “Ratnik”, promising artillery “Zauralets-D” in calibers 120 mm and 152 mm. It is conducted for the benefit of the Airborne Forces.
This year we plan to finish the preparation of preliminary tests for the caliber of 120 mm and to begin it on January 1, 2015. It is scheduled to complete them by the end of June. In the future, after the elimination of the identified deficiencies, the sample will be transferred to the state tests.
